I'm shooting mostly portraits. Thank you. Jack.
What happened was that I got super deal on the flashes, so I both 7. Triggers I was getting for several months, little I know I end up with this setup.
Hello. I'm new to the area. I just moved in few months ago and I'm looking for the best scenic locations in South Carolina, Greenville area. Thank you. Jack.
Hello, I was able to gather between my Canon 430EX III RT, two Youngnuo 600EX RT, one Neweer 585EX with a ETTL trigger and three Bower flashes with ETTL triggers. I'm trying to figure out the best lighting studio setup. I have six flashes stands with diffuser boxes, one of them is a over the head boom light. I know seven flashes is a excess, but I have so I should be able to use it. I'm verey open to any suggestions. Thank you. Jack.
I just another prime lens, a 6.5 Opteka Super Fish Eye. Wow, what a effects it can pool! No other zoom can come close to this focal length. Lens itself is on the soft side, hard to focus since on Canon focusing light which tell you when in focus, on this lens does not work. Still lens is worth $120 I paid for it brand new.
I decided to try a complicated setup. 7 flashes, It just happened that I have 7 flashes and I will try to use them all. Boom on the top, small stand from below and 4 flashes on both sides. I will experiment hopefully within few days. I just waiting for ci=couple triggers and boom stand. I know five flash setup, but since I have the equipment, I will try it. If you have different ideas, just post It! Thank you. Jack.
I'm sorry you are right. I made a typo and instead of 430EX III RT I wrote 430EX II RT. Thanks for catching my mistake. Jack.
How about four flashes setup? Any ideas?
Actually I have Canon 430EX III RT and it works with Canon trigger. This is confirm by the Canon themselves. If it comes to your lighting methods is sounds very interesting. I can't wait to try it.
Hello, after figuring out my Canon's setting for wireless flash, I decided to ask you for help with any tips you can think of for someone like me, who is just strting it. I have Canon 77D, Canon Speedlite 430EX II RT, Canon St-E3-RT trigger and two Yongnuo 600RT Flashes. My hope is to create small studio using all three flashes. I also have two studio stands with black and silver umbrellas, as well small backdrop stand and 10 bnackdrops. Anything you thing I should know, it is welcomed. I know how to setup RT System either on one channel or 3 individual channels. ETTL, Strobe, Power decrese or increase. Thank you. Jack.
I just got sweet prime lens, Canon 135mm Soft focus. Increadible what this lens can do. And of course no zoom can do this. I also looking on very cheap lens 6.5 mm Opteka prime. Usually I don'y buy Chineese lenses, however getting one with full Fish-Eye feature and 180Degree viewis tempting me, especially that you can get it Brand New On ebay for $120. I think I'm gone geet one just to test and see if quality is useable. Again, zoom lenses are usually going to be around 10-20mm, nothing close to 6.5mm no matter what price. Having majority of lenses being prime than zoom, I have to admid it that I like prime lenses better. Zoom lenses are easier to use, but from f stop large opening to superior quality prime lenses are just better. Unless you can afford Canon L type grade lenses, their quality would be close to prime lenses. In conclusion, unless you can afford proffesional lenses like Canon L type, prime lensses are your choice, quality and special features like tilt shift, extreme focal length or soft focus are in desire.
After countless hours and phone call to Canon ( I told them that my equipment is exclusively Canon) I finally figure out what was wrong. My Yongnuo trigger YN-E3-RT was bad. I both used Canon trigger and within five minutes all my three flashes, Yongnuo 600RT and Canon 430ECX II RT were firing without a problem. I'm so glad that my issue is solved. Being new to RT Wireless Flash Canon is using and having bad component was just cruel. I thank you all for your help.. The tips I gather will help me for sure. Jack.
Hello. I just got my Canon trigger and guess what? Within five minutes all my flashes, including two Yongnuo's fired without a problem! What a relief. Now my mini photo studio powered by Canon trigger, Canon 430EX III RT, Two Yongnuo's 600RT's can take place! I'm new to wireless Flash. That is why was so much harder for me to find out what was wrong. Once again I thank you all for your help. Jack.
Now for the prime. I just got 135 mm Canon soft focus. You can't find soft focus in zoom. As well you can't find zoom tilt shift lens.
OK. After many hours and many trials, as well calls to Canon. I determine that my Yongnuo trigger is bad. Even Canon agreed to it ( I told them that the trigger was Canon). I already both used Canon trigger, just waiting for it's arrival. I will keep you posted once it's arrive. Thank you for all the help and responses. I learned a lot from you about wireless flash systems. Jack.
